    Pro-life Tennessee congressman taped himself persuading mistress to get an abortion

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-abortion.html

    A Tennessee congressman running for re-election on a pro-life platform urged his pregnant mistress to get an abortion a decade ago.

    According to a transcript of their conversation that he recorded, Republican representative Dr Scott DesJarlais tells the unidentified woman that he is concerned that she hadn't taken steps toward terminating the pregnancy.

    'You told me you'd have an abortion, and now we're getting too far along without one,' Dr DesJarlais is quoted as saying. 'If we need to go to Atlanta, or whatever, to get this solved and get it over with so we can get on with our lives, then let's do it.'

    On his website, Dr DesJarlais claims that he opposes abortion, saying: 'All life should be cherished and protected. We are pro-life.'

    The DesJarlais campaign have not disputed the contents of the transcript, first reported by the Huffington Post, but condemned the circulation of 'desperate personal attacks.'

    'This is old news from the last election cycle that Tennesseans have already widely rejected,' spokesman Robert Jameson said in an email.

    'Since the congressman's opponents cannot attack him on his independent, conservative and pro-life record in Congress they have once again resorted to pure character assassination,' he said.

    Dr DesJarlais, who has a surgery in Jasper, a suburb of Chattanooga, defeated Democratic Rep. Lincoln Davis in 2010.

    Davis said his campaign was aware of the transcript during that race, but he wasn't able to confirm its authenticity until a recent conversation with Dr DesJarlais' ex-wife Susan. Their divorce was finalized in 2001.

    Is anyone surprised?

    This is another example of the good ol' "Do as I say not as I do" mentality of the GOP.

    Nothing new here folks, move along....

    Yes because no Democrat has ever said one thing while doing something else. Accusing the GOP of doing one thing and saying something else and acting like the Dems don't do the same is supremely niave.

    I'm sure very few democrats have coherced someone to vet an abortion while simultaniously trying go outlaw abortion.

    I have sympathy for this man. I would even go as far as to say if he views abortion as murder (as I do) then he needs to be tried for attempted murder.

    Yeah but they didn't hesitate to claim they were going to have the most ethical administration in the history of the US while cheating on their wife with the secretary in the Oval Office...

    True, but he wasn't trying to outlaw infidelity either.
    The problem is not that he did it, the problem is that he did it while trying to make it so no one else could. I guess he just wants all the abortion for himself.

    Alex said that the GOP says one thing and does something else. My statement was to point out that the Dems are hardly immune to that. I am not going to argue semantics. If you think that it is less of a big deal for a president to commit adultry in the Oval Office and more of a big deal for some no-name congressman to push for an abortion while promoting anti-abortion, that is your choice. I think both are proof that politicans are all alike. I just think it is highly hypocritical to criticize the GOP for something when Dems have their own laundry list of character issues.

    To suggest that deceit is anything but a human trait is ridiculous.

    Oh, its all lies for certain. The difference is Clinton never said you can't do it but I can. That's what this guy said. It may be semantics to you but its the reality of the situation.
